I agree with Richard. People love to see a beautiful job, especially on a great classic car. Together, they are stunning.

Default Interior Work On Rose Is About Done

It has been awhile since I have posted anything about the work being completed on YellowRose. She is nearly finished, as far as the interior goes. Danny has been working on different things toward getting her completed. I wont go into a lot of details here. You can read about the specialist he called in to fix the splits in my dash pad and see the before and after results. Danny still has some minor things to do. He has been catching up some of his other work as we waited for parts to come in. The door mechanism that I got from Eddie's parts car has fixed my drivers door problem. The spring in the mechanism in my door was broken. It is no more! We are brainstorming the work in the trunk, though I already pretty well know what I want. Click on the link below to see what you think about the job Shawn did on patching my dashpad...

Cool

Ray I am speechless, as I follow your site and pixs about the restoration of Rose. You are a patience man ( now pushing three (3) months ) and the finished result will certainly be worth it. I am also confident that your local chapterm is waiting to see the completed Rose when she finally pulls up.

Default Dash ...

Looks great. Allways nice to see something done the way it should. I need to find someone in my neck of the woods (NW Colo.) to fix a few small cracks in my 66' F-250 dash pad. Mike

Hi Mike and Dan, Thanks much for the nice comments. Mike, I will call Shawn in the morning and see if he knows anyone in your part of the woods that might be a good dash pad guy to contact. You never know. He might know someone or give me some ideas as to who you might contact there to find someone. I will get back with you.

Hi Mike,

I called Shawn and he said there used to be an association of people who did dash, leather, interiors, repairs, but it seems to have fallen apart. He mentioned CCI-Creative Colors International. So I went to their website. The only office they have in the whole state of Colorado is in North Denver. Here is the information on it. Of course, I have no idea how good they might be. Shawn is going to call his suppliers and see if they can recommend others in the Colorado area that you might be able to contact. I will get back with you if he comes up with others.

Default Interior Work On Rose Is About Done

Danny is putting the finishing touches on the interior. Yesterday, he was finishing up working on my floor mats. He also put in new seat belts for me. He is doing paint clean up also, and a few other things. He is almost done. There are a few more pix I will put up about something he is putting the finishing touches to. I am replacing the turn signal shaft as it is pretty beat up. A new one is coming in from Bird Nest. That is just a matter of unscrewing the old one and screwing in the new one. You will see new pix if you click on the link below...

Hey Ray,
JUST AWESOME! JUST AWESOME!!! Love the white floor mats with the yellow trim and the white seat belts look great. I hope when you get finished you will save these pictures for the rest of us who need to redo our interior.
Hats off to Danny and his guys, very professional work. I don't think the factory could have done a better job!!!

I had whined to Ray about the black seat belts, suggested going with white, and offered to make covers out of clear vinyl for them...but he had Danny do the covers instead
I dunno about those floor mats though, they look pretty plain, hows about a copy of the rose embroidered onto them ?
